Fieldfares and Blackbird, Acrylic on Canvas(60cmx40cm)
Still pushing to get some painting done over the end of the winter, which has returned here in earnest. Fresh snowfalls have seen a jump in numbers in Fieldfare locally, no doubt early returning birds. There are several in my back garden as a result and there is much squabbling going on with the resident Fieldfares. Though common birds here, they make good subjects and I though a group scene would look well. On the day I fancied using acrylic paint and getting plenty of it on to the canvas. In keeping with recent work, this piece was drawn and painted quickly, with a minimum of fuss.
